tv   CNN Newsroom With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul  CNN  February 2, 2019 7:00am-8:01am PST

7:00 am
all in the same place as your live tv. its all included with your amazon prime membership. that's how xfinity makes tv... simple. easy. awesome. all right. at this hour, democrat ralph northam is still governor. state leaders and candidates want him to resign. >> he apologized for the racist yearbook photo from a medical school yearbook. shows men in blackface and klu klux klan robe. now northam said he couldn't recall which figure he was in the photo and vowed to finish
7:01 am
his term. he confirmed he is one of those men. joining us from richmond, dan merica. he is setting a press conference today. what more do you know about that? >> reporter: we have not been told what time that press conference would be. the governor is holding on to his job tenuously at this point. he woke up this morning behind me at the governor's mansion as a man without a party. he didn't have much support going into late last night but that really fell out from under him after statements from both sides of the democratic legislature in virginia and from his predecessor, terry mccauliffe who called on him to resign after speaking to him about the fallout. you can see there's a protest behind me going on outside the governor's mansion, calling on him to resign and step down so the lieutenant governor, justin
7:02 am
fairfax, can take over. so far that's not the word from the governor's office. yesterday, he released a video statement saying he was sorry but pledged to continue his term in office. listen to what he said. >> i have spent the past year as your governor fighting for a virginia that works better for all people. i am committed to continuing that fight through the remainder of my term and living up to the expectations you set for me when you elected me to serve. >> reporter: what followed after that was a cascade of calls, not just here in virginia but nationally. democrats weighing in, saying it was time for northam to go. senator elizabeth warren, krist kristin gillibrand, and joe biden called for ralph northam to step down. what damaged him most were statements from people in virginia, people he worked with
7:03 am
intimately who called on him to go. what now we're waiting for is what the lieutenant governor has to say. we're told that the governor and lieutenant governor spoke last night, didn't describe what happened in the conversation and fairfax hasn't publicly weighed in on what he thinks of the fallout. >> dan, have you spoken to any of the protesters there? >> reporter: yeah, they're fired up. before we came on, they gave a few speeches why they were here. they're holding signs calling for northam to go but expressly calling for fairfax to take over as soon as possible. the historic context with the photo and what's happening now, richmond was the capital of the confederacy. charlottesville is a few miles down the road across virginia.
7:04 am
that was the sight of conflicts over confederate monuments. that's not lost on people here. they're giving speeches saying it is time for northam to go, put this past them and try to grow from it. i asked them how many of them voted for ralph northam when he ran for election in 2017. nearly all of them raised their hand and said they would like their vote back. victor, christi? >> dan merica in richmond. thank you. >> bring in andres cars on, a democrat from indiana. thank you for being with us. what do you think needs to happen? does he need to step down? >> well, i echo the sentiment of my friend and colleague, congressman don mckeecham who is from virginia. he served with then senator northam and mentioned in press release his record as a senator, but this is very disturbing.
7:05 am
i think many of us can claim youthful indiscretions, however, he was an adult. given legacy of the klu klux klan and hurtful legacy of blackface, he should have known better. i think he is young enough to have known better. i think in a real sense it speaks to the climate in which we live in where you have white supremacists growing at an alarming rate. we're seeing hate crimes against muslims and african americans and latinos, members of the lgbtq community. these pictures are a painful reminder we have a long way to go with race relations. >> listen to what governor northam said in his statement. >> that photo and the racist and offensive attitudes it represents does not reflect that person i am today or the way that i have conducted myself as a soldier, a doctor and public servant. i am deeply sorry.
7:06 am
i cannot change the decisions i made nor can i undo the harm my behavior caused then and today. >> congressman, is it fair to accept he is not the same person today as he was then and does it matter? >> i certainly understand that all of us evolve throughout life but right now i'm taking queues from folks in virginia and from congressional colleagues and friends, congressman bobby scott and don mckeecham. >> he enjoyed broad african-american support since he was elected. do you see anyone coming to his defense? >> not at this point. again, i'm taking queues from my congressional colleagues, bobby scott, don mckeecham. they served with him, know him better than i do. i can only go by pictures and reports. taking a picture in blackface, even with the hood on is
7:07 am
unacceptable and worthy of resignation. >> that's what i want to ask you. he says that he does not know which person he is in that picture. does it matter that he figures that out and owns it? >> i don't think it matters whether you were in the klan uniform or blackface, both are equally offensive. i think given the history of racism and the history of klu klux klan, their attacks on african americans and catholics, jewish brothers and sisters. they've evolved as it were, so they're not as detectible in today's time, but their efforts and outreach are the same and felt. let's not even talk about blackface and the destructive legacy of blackface and its contribution to the broken psychology in the african-american minds throughout history.
7:08 am
>> congressman carson. stay with us. we have breaking news on russia and want your thoughts on that as well as a member of the intelligence committee. this morning, we are learning russia is going to build new super sonic nuclear missile after the u.s. backed out of a cold war missile. we're going to talk about that on the other side of the break. and it is super bowl weekend in atlanta, one more day of practice for the patriots and rams. coming up, we will hear how players deal with pre-game nerves. ensure max protein... to give you the protein you need with less of the sugar you don't.

not long ago, ronda started here. and then, more jobs began to appear. these techs in a lab. this builder in a hardhat... ...the welders and electricians who do all of that. the diner staffed up 'cause they all needed lunch. teachers... doctors... jobs grew a bunch. what started with one job spread all around. because each job in energy creates many more in this town. energy lives here.

billions of problems. morning breath? garlic breath? stinky breath? there's a therabreath for you. therabreath fresh breath oral rinse instantly fights all types of bad breath and works for 24 hours. so you can... breathe easy. there's therabreath at walmart. okay. mckeacham. moscow is responding. >> reporter: vladimir putin says russia will construct a medium range supersonic nuclear missile. >> the agreement was signed with the ussr during the cold war with intention to prevent an arms race. oren lieberman is live. what else are you hearing from the kremlin?
7:13 am
>> reporter: russian president vladimir putin called this a tit for tat exchange. russia has been expecting a move like this from the united states for quite some time. diplomatic efforts to bring the two sides to some sort of agreement haven't worked out. russia had their response very much ready. what is imf, this is signed between the u anited states and the ussr. an arms control treaty limiting the range of missiles to 300 miles and 3500 miles. there are exemptions for air launch and sea launched weapons. the idea was to have agreement between the two world super powers to be sure there was nonproliferation and arms control treaty. that has fallen by the wayside with the u.s. suspension. they gave russia 180 days to come into compliance, it seems neither the u.s. or europeans
7:14 am
ornate oh is optimistic about their intentions. they said we're going to develop the sea based hypersonic missile and make it ground based, blatant violation of a treaty that no longer seems to hold water. >> thank you so much. appreciate the update. with us now, samantha vinograd, cnn national security analyst and former senior adviser under president obama. sam, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> first we want to show you this cover from "new york daily news." a game of one up man ship between trump and putin. this says playing with fire, big mushroom cloud here. what do you think about this? is this too much, too far? >> it is not too much too far in the sense that we are facing potentially a nuclear wild west, victor. withdrawal from the imf treaty
7:15 am
because of russian violations begs the question whether we're going to be living in a world where there are not nonproliferation regimes that govern the testing, development, and use of nuclear weapons. but the larger point i want to stress, victor, is that russia does not need nuclear weapons to attack us. we're under live attack by the russian government using something a heck of a lot cheaper than nuclear weapons, that is cyber warriors and information warriors. while we focus on the president's willingness to confront russia over its nuclear treaty violations, it is very striking that he is seemingly unwilling to confront vladimir putin about the assets that he is using to attack us as we speak. >> former secretary of state colin powell said it is dangerous to do, pulling out of the treaty for the u.s. and the u.s. will regret doing so. do you believe it is dangerous?
7:16 am
what is in your opinion the most impending threat here? >> the most impending threat is that vladimir putin no longer has to hide any violations of this treaty. in the past, he had to go to at least some lengths to try to hide the fact that he has been building these weapons that violate terms of the treaty. it is not only the united states that believes he is in violation, our nato allies supported our decision publicly and said and agree that russia is violating terms of the treaty. so at this point it is a no holds barred situation. vladimir putin can continue to violate the treaty now openly. and the real question is what are we going to do to punish him? are there going to be more sanctions? we don't have sanctions related to chemical weapons. are we going to implement sanctions punish noncompliance. and will any allies join us in that endeavor. >> what do you make of the argument from some that support the u.s. withdrawal from imf treaty that in some part this is
7:17 am
related to having to crackdown on china, that they have to bring china into the fold and make sure they're not going where the soviets were going 30 years ago. >> it is an argument based upon the fact that china is, if it was a party to the treaty, would be in violation of it based upon its extensive buildup of short and medium range missiles. at this point i think it will be very hard to negotiate a separate agreement with china based upon inconsistent approach to nuclear weapons around the world. we are currently engaged with north korea in discussions, we're not willing to call out their noncompliance with their commitments, we now walked away from a treaty with russia. i don't see there's any basis under which china would say we want to get into the discussion with the united states, we trust them and want to give away these weapons. seems unlikely to me. >> thanks so much. >> thanks. i want to bring back congressman carson to talk about
7:18 am
this, a democrat from indiana, member of the intelligence committee. congressman, thank you for sticking around. we appreciate it, to make sure the viewers were completely applies apprised of the elements of the story. sam talked about implementing sanctions. do you agree that might be a way to go at this point? >> i certainly do. i don't think we should act unilaterally to stoke a new nuclear arms race. i do, however, think we have to be very serious and deliberate. we need constraints in place, but that doesn't mean that america has to escalate in this process. what is clear is that we've been too soft on russia, given the grave violations we have seen, particularly with the interference in the electoral process and now with the controversy surrounding the mueller investigations and indictments handed down. russia is a clear and present threat. . the president has been too soft on vladimir putin and on russia.
7:19 am
i think it is time for us to think seriously about implementing sanctions and get to root causes. russia is a threat. we can recall 1987, i was 12, going on 13 that year, remembering when mi cal gorbachev and reagan signed that treaty. it is important we cannot forget, now we have vladimir putin, former kgb, he is still a threat. he is in a race to be number one globally. we can't let that happen. >> the president would say that he has been tough on russia, that he has implemented sanctions on them and when we look at russia, they invaded crimea, interfered in elections, questions abound regarding russia's willingness to comply with the imf regulations which now they're dismissing this morning. is there any way you think to encourage, to solidify russia honoring that treaty? >> i think we have to get tougher on russia. i think we have to let russia
7:20 am
know we mean business. i think russia has continually violated our air space. they taunted us in many ways. they imposed themselves in our election, inserted themselves in our elections, so they're testing us globally. it's almost as if they don't care, especially as relates to donald trump. we need leadership that's going to be tough on russia and will let russia know. we don't need symbolic sanctioning, we neared hard sanctions that will make them realize america is not playing. >> as a member of the intelligence committee, who do you want to talk to, what do you want to know? >> well, we're looking forward to speaking to michael cohen next week, i think chairman schiff is capable. we have the cream of the crop as it were in terms of members on the committee. i think i'm excited about democrats being in control. we're going to bring dignity back to this prestigious committee. those on the committee, even republicans included. we take our jobs very seriously,
7:21 am
as a former police officer, someone that worked in counterterrorism, indiana department of homeland security, i understand global threats that exist. russia as i said beginning of the talk is a threat and continues to be a threat, so these hearings will be ref la tori. stay tuned. >> we appreciate you taking time to be with us and stay with us a couple of blocks here. thank you. >> thank you. seems there's another reversal for manufacturing company foxconn, the electronics company based in taiwan that will produce flat-screen panels at a new plant in wisconsin. that announcement comes after president trump spoke to the foxconn chairman. earlier this week, the company announced they were reconsidering manufacturing jobs in wisconsin and removing those from the facility. that announcement agitated the president. that's because president trump touted that plant as proof of manufacturing jobs moving back to the united states.
7:22 am

we'll give you a automatic twenty dollar credit. my name is antonio and i'm a technician at comcast. we're working to make things simple, easy and awesome. i am christi paul. >> and i am victor blackwell. >> bernie sanders and joe biden called for the resignation of ralph northam. biden and sanders add to others that are expressing distaken da
7:27 am
his actions. northam says he has had broad fl african-american support. a cnn poll shows 87%. but the virginia governor has a questionable past when it comes to race related issues. let's discuss. joining me, republican strategist brian robinson, former obama 2012 south regional director. good morning to you both. let's start here. a member of the virginia legislative black caucus said that northam told him he can't even remember which one he is. so either he is lying because there's no up side to being the person in the blackface or the one in the hood or it is unremarkable from that time in his life, i could be the one in blackface or maybe i'm the one in the hood. how is that possible you can't remember putting that on your face and putting the hood on?
7:28 am
>> this is bad for the governor. he came out and said that picture in the yearbook was racist, insensitive. he tried to apologize to people of virginia and also the american people now. but therein lies the point. it is like his pr since the photo has been released has been terrible. he comes out and basically apologizes. >> reporter: and to your point, can't remember if he was blackface or the kkk member. >> let me say on the front end, i have never worn either of those costumes or what you call them, i don't know. seems to me if you're smearing grease or wearing appointed hood, you remember that. that's not something you unless blackout drunk don't remember. i think it would be more photographic evidence if that
7:29 am
was something regular. i would think that would have come out at some juncture. what i'm interested in seeing is that the democrats invented the yearbook standard. now one of their own has been hoisted on that. so republicans are getting a little bit of the revenge on what happened to cavanaugh, although democrats had to makeup stuff, interpreting what teenage code meant. this case is pretty cut and dry. >> not going to inject partisanship in this. the bottom line is whether he was democrat or republican, we don't know, painted his face black or dressed up in a kkk uniform which is inviting racism that so many like dr. king fought to end in this country. the thing that's baffling to me is that in this day and age, we know republicans spend an enormous amount of money on research against democrats, that this didn't come up during the
7:30 am
campaign. therein lies the challenge. it is not about being democrat or republican, it is about what he was pictured doing at a time when we were trying to move forward as americans. >> what disgusted me, they slurred the republican opponent, ed gillespie as a racist. he is an honorable, decent man. this is hypocrisy. >> you worked for the governor. at some point he will be bad for business in virginia. we can look to the protests against north carolina, the bathroom bill, protests against indiana with the religious freedom bill. do you think he makes it to monday. >> there's only way he does it, that is to do a video address, tv address to people of virginia and say i served my nation in uniform on the frontlines in war, made serious mistakes. i was young and did not understand what this meant. i did not understand how hurtful this was. i spent the last 30 years of my life trying to redeem myself by
7:31 am
serving my community, that includes african americans. that's just one way. speak from the heart. >> 25, you don't know what the kkk hood is or blackface? >> definitely knew what kkk was. >> come on. he has to know. >> i'm not defending it. no. >> you're a communications professional, and maybe that's the only way he does it, but i don't know how many buy that at 25 in virginia you don't know what blackface means historically. >> just last year we saw megyn kelly say this isn't so bad. i think there are a lot of people don't understand how hurtful it is. >> last week, florida former secretary of state was dressed in 2005 as blackface. his quote was there's nothing i can say and then he resigned. northam is trying to hold on. cory booker announced candidacy for the presidency yesterday. this is what we heard from the counselors of the president about that.
7:32 am
>> i think cory booker often soinds li sounds like a hallmark card, not necessarily a person to tell you everything he accomplished in the united states senate and as mayor of newark. >> hallmark card, brian? >> i don't know exactly what that means. i can tell you what i think about cory booker. the image of him seered in many's minds is what happened in the kavanaugh hearings last year. >> you're really on that. >> i thought he and harris and other democratic senators really hurt themselves with middle america. they were so aggressive. >> is she trying to say he is soft? >> i think she means -- >> i think they need that after he called people horse face, insulting his opponents. >> to move on from the virginia situation, i think that the reason you have this conversation we're having about the governor of virginia is
7:33 am
because of the sort of radicalism we heard from this white house. we're a country very against any type of acts of racism and not tolerant to any display of it. back to cory booker. he is a great u.s. senator, a phenomenal mayor, and to say he is a hallmark card is a blatant insult. she needs to apologize to him. this is the type of behavior that donald trump condones. i think what they're also trying to say. >> don't say that was right. >> to say a u.s. senator is a hallmark card, infers there's nothing there, i mean, that to me was amazing. >> let me jump in. senator kirsten gillibrand, candidate for president was in new hampshire and weighed in on the northam scandal. watch. >> he should resign. i saw the photo after i saw you last night, so disturbing, so racist. there's no place for racism in
7:34 am
our government, among our leaders. it really was so disturbing. >> the difference between the presidential candidates, you have to tell this governor to resign. you're about to run in a primary across the nation where african americans are the overwhelming majority of votes. what i want to see is this. i want more republicans. brian wants to come out and say this type of stuff is not tolerated. brian said many times that the republican party needs to back up words with deeds to expand the party. right now, you have mitch mcconnell who says i don't want more people to vote, they're going to vote for democrats, it is all good that the candidates are doing that, but they have to. they're about to run these areas. i want more republican leaders to come out and join them if they feel this governor should resign. >> on gillibrand, she needs to
7:35 am
be careful about condemning people for things they did in the past because she has done a lot of things way too conservative in her more recent past for a democratic primary electorate. she will have a lot of explaining to do about her early political career when she was more conservative than now. if you are responsible for everything you ever did, she's going to pay a price for that. >> that may be more forgivable than appearing in blackface. >> brian, darren, thank you both. christi? the days leading up to the super bowl include a concert series featuring georgia artist, prominent activist. we'll talk to the man that puts it together, music executive jermaine dupri is with us. and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else?

live pictures of mercedes-benz stadium. we are one day away from patriots, rams for super bowl liii. the week before the super bowl is not just about football. fans that come to atlanta ahead of the game have a series of things to do to stay busy, a lot of entertainment before the game. just a couple of blocks from cnn center, the city is having a free concert series. super bowl live is produced by record executive jermaine dupri, he is also watching social issues by giving a platform to activists. thanks for coming in. >> thanks for having me. >> this is the last night of the super bowl live concert series. going on ten days? >> six. today is the sixth day. >> monica is on stage tonight. >> yes. >> we understand you're giving a platform to people, focusing on a lot of issues, one is police brutality.

tell us how you're doing that. >> actually, it is changing now. it was a miscommunication. i want to have a meeting with seven parents whose kids were killed by police brutality. >> mothers in the movement. >> yes. i had a conversation with them. i filmed, put it on instagram so people could see what was going on. i wanted to hear from both sides and wanted them to understand my position. a lot of people were getting at me for being a part of this. this is more about this city than super bowl to me. >> you say people are coming at you for being part of this, this is part of several artists in solidarit solidarity with colin
7:42 am
kaepernick, protests to bring awareness to police brutality. how are you navigating space between the relationship with the league and hosting this series and a lot of fans that think you shouldn't. >> the separation is simple. i mean, i'm from atlanta, you know what i mean? i'm the only person in the city with a song called welcome to atlanta. it is hard for me to turn my back on the city. i'm not performing the super bowl, it is not like, you know, what i'm doing, that's why i did it, i did it with atlanta and georgia artists to make sure that people from out of town understand how rich our music culture is, how deep it goes, even before jermaine dupri. it was other things that the backdrop allowed me to do, you know, and that's how i separate. i want people to understand my doing is all about atlanta and making sure that people see how rich the city is with music. >> you plan to give mothers of the movement, black mothers
7:43 am
whose sons were killed by police or by gun violence a platform during the series. then there was a photograph you put up on instagram, this is you with the lombardi trophy at waffle house and they were insulted by this and released a statement through the naacp. i'm going to read it. says january 5th, mothers of the movement sat down with jermaine dupri to explain why boycotting the nfl was essential to the black community. at the end of the meeting, all parties agreed the mothers would speak during jd's concert to raise awareness about unnecessary police violence and brutality in the black community. we refuse to stand alongside any individual that doesn't have the best interest of our community in mind. your response to the last sentence. refusing to stand with an individual that does not have the best interest of our community in mind. >> you know, i don't have much to say. i took the meeting. you know, the thing i said to them when i had the meeting is
7:44 am
that, you know, they can't -- it wasn't them. mothers weren't the people doing it, i was criticized from the beginning. and nobody reached out to me. nobody spoke to me. when i spoke to them, i said all you had to do is call me, let's have a conversation. right? so with that being said, that last statement, i'm not sure. >> their attorney or one that represents them, joe griggs says they want a public apology. do you have one for them? >> for what? we didn't get a chance to do what we were supposed to do. i am the one that deserves an apology, this was my idea, this is not something they came to me about, i went to them, said this is what i want to do, they decided to say no. so i don't know. >> last night of the concert
7:45 am
series, super bowl live, monica on stage. good to have you here. >> thank you. >> quick break. be right back. gentle means everything, so we improved everything. we used 50% fewer ingredients added one handed pumps and beat the top safety standards the new johnson's® choose gentle metastatic breast cancer is relentless, but i'm relentless too. mbc doesn't take a day off, and neither will i. i treat my mbc with everyday verzenio, the only one of its kind that can be taken every day. verzenio is the only cdk4 & 6 inhibitor approved with hormonal therapy that can be taken every day for post menopausal women with hr+, her2 negative mbc. verzenio plus an ai helped women have significantly
